Water Management

TIPCO Asphalt Group aims to improve water usage in line with our responsible water management and shared water usage philosophy

GRI 303-1, GRI 303-2, GRI 303-4 and GRI 303-5 ISO 26000 and ISO 14001

Management Approach

     Water has been well regarded as one of the key natural resources for our businesses as water is one of the key ingredients for asphalt emulsion product lines. Therefore, all TIPCO Asphalt Group’s production plants are equipped with surface water reservoir for each plant’s internal use to ensure no water shortage for production while eliminating risks on dispute over water with nearby community; or in some case, the plant can even access to water source with nearby community during drought.
